One other way that I manage my space on my SSD is through a program called Hazel. I am sure there is probably an equivalent on the Windows side, but I think this program really is fantastic. It is an automation program that allows you to set rules that can be followed. For example, it will scan my Downloads folder and delete any file that is 2 weeks old. This way, I do not have to manually clean that folder. I can have it take a general Documents folder and sort files that are put into it by type (or other attributes), so I do not have to worry about finding the right place to save the file, it will just save it where it's supposed to be. Heck, it will even automatically empty the trash for me if I do not do so over a period of time.

Very nice writeup. Even though the hdd in my MacBook Pro is a 500GB, I think I'm going to check out some of these programs to make sure every thing is running nice.

Not necessarily a convert Wes; a Mac will always be my day-to-day machine. But if I want to game, I need a PC. And if I want to write more for your audience I need a PC. That's all. :)

heh, well it is good timing on this writeup as I am working on my first mod project which will also be a hackintosh build . Wouldn't call myself a Mac convert, but a new challenge is always fun :)
